Woo Hoo !

My first professional camera was a Canon AE1. It went to Europe several times, rolled down hills and once fell into a creek. Nevertheless it kept on working despite everything I did to it. I used that camera for over 10 years, but what killed it in the end was a quick dip in the sea around the Whitsunday Islands on the Barrier Reef. My poor AE1 stopped working.

So a few years ago I bought a Canon EOS. All my nice lenses for the AE1 didn't fit the new mounts. In the mail today arrived an EOS/FD adapter. Expect some photos taken with my Sigma 600mm mirror telephoto any day now.
